Charles University E-resources Portal

The Charles University E-resources Portal (PEZ in Czech) enables users to search in databases of academic texts. The Portal contains databases of electronic resources, an electronic journals portal, and e-books. The Portal offers a range of resources accessible via subscriptions paid at University level or faculty level, plus freely accessible resources, trial access to some resources, and links to other meta-resources similar to the Portal.

The Portal is accessible to all University students and staff, as well as to external users of the University’s libraries (subject to conditions stipulated by individual libraries of faculties and other parts of the University).

The Portal can be accessed directly from any computer connected to the Charles University network or a network of a faculty or other part of the University; the system automatically logs users into the Portal, so there is no need to enter an ID or password. Charles University staff and students can also use remote access to the Portal.

There is also a Facebook page and an EIZ blog where you can find updates on Charles University e-resources and systems (PEZ, MetaLib, SFX, EZproxy, Shibboleth, Verde).
